Fluor Processes and Systems Improve Project Execution

Fluor develops and implements proven processes and systems to execute some of the world's most complex projects. Instituting a higher level of quality assurance, these processes and systems are integrated on projects by Fluor teams in our global offices and on project sites.

Project Management – Fluor's project management is responsible for developing execution plans, detailed schedules, cost forecasts, progress tracking and reporting.

Project Execution Systems – Business development and project execution begins with a clear understanding of Fluor's Operating Systems Requirements (OSR). This company manual documents basic quality and operating requirements. Each Business Line within Fluor develops Operating System Implementation Plans, further describing the OSR implementation within the business segment.

Project Collaboration Tool – Fluor's robust project collaboration and document management tool engages the entire project team – including home office, site personnel, Clients, vendors, fabricators and suppliers – in communication and collaboration regardless of the team members' locations worldwide. As a powerful, combined solution, the tool enhances collaboration and the timely distribution of information throughout the entire project lifecycle.

Business Systems – In addition to commercial software applications, Fluor has developed several proprietary business systems for executing projects. These systems include applications for use in project management, project controls, engineering, design, material management, contracting, fabrication, construction and knowledge management.

Tools – Fluor uses proven tools to manage and execute every project. Risk assessments are required on all projects. Fluor uses the Business Risk Management Framework (BRMFSM) as the formalized method for developing the assessments and risk mitigation plans.
 
Fluor’s Project Execution Plan is the primary tool used for projects. This document contains all requirements and plans for completing the project safely, on schedule and within budget. Other tools include procedures, quality and Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) manuals, along with numerous checklists for each discipline involved.

Local Knowledge – Fluor understands local regulations, workforce requirements and cultural perspectives. Our global knowledge base complies with national and regional laws and regulations.

Compliant Delivery – Fluor is committed to international export and import compliance laws and regulations. Our compliance organization, project procurement and logistics organizations work closely to support daily supply-chain transactions.

Continuous Learning Environment – Fluor's award-winning knowledge management system, Knowledge OnLineSM, enables us to share and apply our collective expertise 24/7. Knowledge OnLine enhances Fluor's global collaborative environment and the availability of extensive reference materials and templates.
